[reporters talking over each other] pres. trump: we are fighting all of the subpoenas. the democrats are trying to win 2020. they are not going to win with the people that i see, and they are not going to win against me. the only way they can may be is by out, -- luck out, constantly going after me on nonsense. but they should be really
